Patient Child.

He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness…at that time each will receive his praise from God.             1 Cor 4:5

I had such a wonderful evening last night.  I got to spend time with my brand new proxy nephew -he is the most handsome young baby boy in the world- and fellowship with a well-grounded family of faith.  It is very fulfilling to spend blessed time with Children of God.

I went to bed last night content.

And then I woke up this morning.

I think my sarcoidosis is in flare up because everything hurts.  I have very tender spots all over my body, my cough has been worse the last couple of days, and I feel down.  I was feeling sorry for myself and my eyes are were leaking, but then I heard this soft whisper…

 Be patient in affliction.

Sometimes it makes things all better just knowing that my Heavenly Father is near.

Last night I noticed that my friend had a picture on her wall of Jesus holding an infant and gazing lovingly at it…

…Not this exact picture…but you get the picture.

I think we all have days like this whether we’re willing to admit it or not.  Days where we just want to be like an infant child again and spend the day in the arms of the Heavenly Father.

And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3

Tonight maybe I will go to bed content again.

Jesus, thank you for my imagination.  It is the playground on which faith is set free in the Word.  May my imagination bring you glory, Lord.  Makes me think of this verse about your soon return…

…their secret thoughts will be exposed…. 1 Cor 14:25

Thank you Lord Jesus, that through the gift of faith in your work on the cross I have nothing to fear about that day or hour for my mind and thoughts, by God’s grace, are fixed on you.  Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
